Advanced Rotator RD5 (F1162) has been discontinued and sold out. It is replaced with Advanced Rotator RD10 Single Plunger (F1140-1). This helps to simplify our product line up and offer customers a lower cost pathway to multi-row pano head such as Nodal Ninja 3 MK3.
Part in a series of Fanotec’s new top of the line CNC machined advanced rotators. These rotators combine high precision, ease of use, compactness, light weight and durability. The inner ball bearing construction also provides for very fluid rotation. You can now change click stops on-the-fly, ideal in time sensitive situations in which shooting must be completed quickly, such as in shooting high resolution multi-image mosaics or shooting the same scene at different focal lengths.
The RD5 has 5 different selectable click options suitable for wide angle and standard focal length shooting (approx. 50mm).

- Made from imported premium quality aluminum alloy.
- Precision CNC machined components.
- Lubricated bearings for smooth rotation.
